Overview
This book will not please those who have totally bought into the idea that wars are won and casualties limited through technology, nor those who think the victor's version of history is always correct. But, all U.S. security personnel should still read it. Possibly the best treatise on Oriental warfare ever produced in the West, it sheds new light on what an Asian infantry unit can do: (1) alternate between guerrilla, mobile, and positional warfare; (2) use "ordinary forces" to engage and "extraordinary forces" to defeat; and then (3) run away when fighting holds no more strategic import. What occurred in history doesn't change, but one's perception of it does -- as he comes to better understand his former foe. Here's what really happened at Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Chosin Reservoir, and Hue City. Instead of retreating, America's foes have often been tactically withdrawing to save lives. By discussing how the NVA held their own without any resupply, tanks, artillery, or air support, this book reveals what U.S. grunts must do to survive the more lethal weaponry of the 21st Century.
